Seahawks Sign T.O.
After a workout Monday, the Seahawks signed veteran wideout Terrell Owens to a one year deal.
Looking to sign a bigger wide receiver to replace the departed Mike Williams, the Seahawks have signed 12 year veteran Terrell Owens to a one year contract. Terms weren’t released, but it’s believed Owens signed for the veteran standard amount for a player with his NFL career length.
Owens, 38, sat out last year after knee surgery, but ran a 4.45 40 yard dash, according to Seahawks coaches.
The stats total of his 15 NFL seasons are huge: 1,078 receptions; 15,934 receiving yards, which ranks second all-time behind Jerry Rice (22,895); 153 TD catches, which ties for second all-time with Randy Moss, again behind Rice (197).

As productive as Owens has been, at times his off-field and even on-field behavior has overshadowed what he brings to an offense. He comes to the Seahawks with the understanding that his focus needs to be on football.
